Mama Needs A Moment Podcast – 2021 WRAL Voters’ Choice Award Winner!
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Paula Kettula, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been working with children and families for over 20 years.
Paula is the creator and the host of a massively successful online parenting summit called “Becoming a Peaceful Parent” and has developed a unique approach to parenting based on a powerful transformational leadership framework which she is using to empower parents to become conscious, confident, and inspiring parents so they can create authentic, connected, and loving relationships with their children.

She also has a diploma in Montessori education from Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), is a certified yoga teacher (RYT-200) and is trained in EMDR, Sandplay Therapy, Play Therapy and Transformational Leadership.
Our discussion today included:
The pressure society puts on parents Being attuned to your kids needs The power of a morning ritual How learning to play an instrument can benefit the brain The need for children to have independence and how this differs in other countries Parenting as a leadership role and using power rather than force to parent our children Battling the power struggles that often emerge with children Why our kids can be so triggering and the importance of parents healing their own traumas and wounds The importance of taking responsibility for our actions as a leader and parent
